Manual transmission: you take your foot off the brake and you go nowhere. You take that clutch out too quickly and you may jump forward, especially in a car with a lot of torque cause it will have a little more grabbing power.

3. Yes I have driven in traffic before a v8 isn't harder to drive in traffic that's a bad excuse XD sorry but you must be bad at driving if the engine affects taping the gas to inch forward

4. Lol I owned both a v6 and now have a gt and both got 18-19 around town so again don't use that as a excuse Becuase u can't control your driver habits though if u stomp on it that much in ur v6 I'm glad u don't have a v8 you'd wrap it around a tree

5. You have no idea about engine wear and tear you will lose hp and torque over time but that all depends on how it was driven
Also 1979-1993 was fox body. Not 99-04

I never said it would sound like a GT? And yeah mine sounds good with its sports car sound so I'm not complaining. And yeah in a long distance race the gt would probably win... Stock. But I know people who are pulling over 350 hp with sixxers, so in a straight line drag, it could be faster

94 - 04 were based on the fox design and called fox 4 if I'm not mistaken.

Yep just googled that, still not finding anything. I'm not saying I'm right or you're wrong, or vice versa... I just want to find proof of who is right.

Okay this is going absolutely no where, neither one of us has hard proof, all I have is stuff calling it new edge, that's it, and you haven't given me anything other than just saying its a fox

I just asked my dad about putting a different name on you car you drive and he said you have to list the primary driver and if te insurance company has suspicion about you driving a car all the time that's under someone else's name, they will question you and if they catch you lieing, you are in deep **** and have to pay a huge fine.

If both names are on the car with the insurance policy, even though father may be primary driver, it does not exclude the other drivers listed on the policy. It may not be totally honest but all drivers would be covered. As far as a fine goes, I doubt that, the most they could do would be to either drop one driver or the entire policy.

It depends on how many cars you have... If you have 4 cars and 3 drivers then you will most likely have to be listed as a primary driver for 1 of the cars before you can be an "occasional" driver for the other car. So if there is just 1 car for everyone in the house then you aren't really going to be able to get that loophole.

It's not really a Fox.. It's on the SN-95/Fox 4 platform but it's a total redesign from an actual Fox Body.

Yes but the insurance company can have suspicion that you are driving a car that you are not listed under and they can take a statement from you ad if they catch you lying, you will have to pay a huge fine

I believe v8s are easier to drive because u don't have to rev them much to move From a stop and with all that torque u can skip gears and it's also less likely to stall. Also i got 31 highway on my way back home from work last night driving ~70

Its still the fact that you drive it... Just get listed as an occasional driver that way you can still drive it and be your DD without them knowing.

You guys don't get it I don't use ur policy for mine it's u have the primary drivers and the Other people are automatically assumed to be driving it once in a while there is no seperate status u need to be covered they just add the extra onto each car
